One of my greatest college memories was my sorority’s big/little reveal. It was so exciting to finally know who my big was! My pledge class gathered in our lodge’s living room to find an item that had our name on it. Then, we all went into the chapter room to match our item to our new big! Regardless of whether your big/little reveal is organized as an event or done individually, there are easy ways to make your reveal memorable. Here are some of the best big/little reveal ideas I’ve come across through friends and online (another point for Pinterest) that I’d like to share.
Be Her Gift
I cannot describe how adorable it is when a big pops out of a large box to surprise her little! You can write your new little’s name directly on the box, on an oversized tag attached to the box, or on a separate oversized tag that she can then match to her box. Themes are limitless: you can stick with traditional present decoration, a unique theme for your family, or anything at all that you and your new little enjoy!
Family Letter Shirts

Many of my friends have unique letter shirts that they make specifically for their sorority family. For example, my family’s shirt is a black v-neck with our sorority letters in Batman logo print; my sorority family now gives our new members their own Batman shirt at big/little reveal to welcome them to the family. Along with being a gift your little can wear for years to come, shirts can also be an easy way for your new little to find your family in a crowd if your big/little reveal takes place with your whole chapter present.
